“Icy Treat”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

In Florida's hot and humid Summer an icy treat is welcomed, but there is not much else to say about this. The outdoor seating is ample, and they offer a good variety of ices, and ice cream. They do have some daily special flavors.

I've occasionally tasted an off flavor in the ices, which I can only assume is from the local water.

Order at the window and wait while the young staff prepares your order. They are fairly quick and efficient.

“good for what it is”
Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

italian ice isnt the ny kind. frozen custard tastes fresh and is yummy. seating outside and is always busy. if you can deal with a looser interpertation of italian ice check it out.

“Not from Hawaii”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Rita's has a nice water ice but once you have had real Hawaiian shave ice it's not the same. With Rita's there are pieces of fruit which is a nice touch and even better on the first day of spring you get it free.
